Gas Detection in Confined space Industry
When employees are sent into a potentially dangerous confined space, you want to ensure their safety and your company’s compliance. Defined by the HSE as a place which is substantially enclosed (though not always entirely), and where serious injury can occur from hazardous substances or conditions within the space or nearby (e.g. lack of oxygen), confined spaces can be life-threatening if you don’t know what you’re dealing with. It is vital to perform a full risk assessment and where possible, work from outside the space. When it is unavoidable to work in the enclosed space, workers should have a safe system for working inside the space including the utilization of gas detection equipment. Greater education and understanding combined with the ability to map out and pre-empt the hazards represented by every confined space on your site will enable a single person to confidently and safely pre-plan the work of entire teams working within a site’s confined spaces. This high-level view and the ability to access it anytime, anywhere is the future of confined space best practice and ultimately, will help to ensure that every worker goes home safe every day.
Main applications: confined space entry and rescue, manhole operations, tunneling, trench work, and welding.
